California Again Amends the Mandatory Training Rules

 
Wednesday, October 25, 2006
 
California requires employers of 50 or more employees to provide two hours of sexual harassment prevention training to supervisors every two years. Newly enacted AB 2095, effective January 2007, amends the statute to apply to all supervisory employees in California.

The third version of the proposed regulations by the FEHC provides the following: that while new supervisors must be trained within six months of assuming their supervisory position, a new supervisor who had received harassment training in compliance with AB 1825 within the prior two years only would need to be given a copy of, and be required to read and to acknowledge receipt of, the new employer's anti-harassment policy within six months of assuming the new supervisory position.

In its fourth version of proposed regulations to implement the law, California's FEHC re-addressed the method of tracking the training year. Under the latest version, an employer may designate a training year in which it trains some or all of its supervisors and thereafter re-trains them two years later.

The fourth set of rules also provides the new supervisor's current employer has the burden of establishing that the newly hired supervisor's prior training was legally compliant with AB 1825.
